Have you ever seen a traffic police give a namaste to you for violating traffic rules? Probably not! Well such, was the incident which happened in Andra Pradesh where a police officer got fed up with a regular traffic offender and folded his hand to plead with him. The picture of this incident has taken the internet by storm and gone viral as the photo shows a man on a motorcycle with four of his family members riding pillion.
The funny incident happened on Tuesday when Circle Inspector B Shubh Kumar of Anantapur’s Madakasira Circle saw the man K Hanumantharayudu, on a bike with his two sons sitting on the fuel tank, his wife behind him and a relative on edge of the seat, all without helmets. “I had just finished an one-and-half hour programme on road safety awareness in which that man was also present. My mind went blank when I saw the five of them riding so dangerously and all I could do was fold my hands in total resignation, helplessness and frustration. I asked him to think of the safety of his family as he did not have minimum sense of responsibility towards them. As the two kids were sitting on the fuel tank, he had little room to manouevre because their legs were stuck to the handlebar. Accidents happen like that only. When I confronted him, he just smiled back at me and murmured something,’’ Shubh Kumar said.
On a funny note of the incident Abhishek Goyal, Deputy Commissioner of Police -Traffic East, Bengaluru, tweeted this picture and captioned it “What else can he do 😅? We always have a choice .. chose the safe one ! #BeSafe”.
